Common Causes

of Blockages

No matter where the blockage occurs in your drains, there are three areas they always start from. By being mindful of what you are putting down your drains, you can help keep them flowing for longer and therefore blockage free! After all, prevention is always better than cure!

Where blockages tend to occur:

Outside the Property:

  • Tree roots

  • Excessive Garden waste such as leaves and soil.


From the Kitchen:

  • Food waste such as vegetable scraps

  • Coffee grounds or tea leaves

  • Traditional soaps (which contain greases and fats)


From the Bathroom:

  • Hair

  • Feminine hygiene products

  • Non-flushable paper

  • Traditional soaps (which contain greases and fats)

  • Excessive amounts of dirt


Winter Ready!

The colder, wetter months in winter and autumn put obvious additional strain on your drains in Davyhulme East.

Most commonly, the following are problems to be aware of during this time:

  • Freezing and thawing of pipes resulting in breaks and cracks

  • Ice build-up catching waste

  • Fat and oil solidifying in pipes due to the cold weather


Coupled with heavy rainfall, unmaintained drains can quickly become overwhelmed, causing inevitable problems to arise. The quicker these are dealt with, the better for both you and your home.

Drain Maintenance


All too often, many of us wait until something goes wrong with our drains before looking after them.

Regular drain maintenance leads to a healthy drain system at your property, which means you are not left with any unexpected problems when you least need them.

Here at DHC Utilities, our maintenance service is a simple annual check-up that allows us to identify and resolve problems before they become even the slightest of issues for you and your home.

Partial Blockages

Partially blocked drains, or ones in need of maintenance, are not as obvious as the water will drain away over time.

However, there are still signs to look out for. These are outlined underneath:

  • Slow draining, or standing water

  • Unpleasant smells from the drains

  • Noises when water drains away can suggest blockages further down the pipe
